He's not set a price yet but mentioned around the £400 mark a month or so ago. Now this one is available on ebay he may revise it.
Link here to the Facebook site, scroll down to videos
Not actually available for sale till in the new year he says.

Cheers. Tom

I think the main problem is there seems to be one coming out every few months and there are no reviews, the Grainfather is more expensive than all of them but has hundreds and mostly positive.

I have one of the regular Ace boilers and love it. If this turns out to be a success I would consider getting one eventually

Same here, as much for the after sales service as anything else.

Someone said they had this one on another thread. Looks tempting.

I may not be understanding this correctly but does the description of that say it crushes the grains for you?

It's a misleading way of wording it, this one reads like the grain must be crushed already.

I've had direct dealings with Ace. They are local to me. They primarily run a catering equipment supply in Normanton (nr Wakefield).
I bought a standard boiler from them about a year ago, with them being local I collected.
Was a great price, friendly enough staff, and helpful email support.
